Martha Stewart Cupcake Club # 2: Zucchini Spice Cupcakes
Hi Sweet Readers!
Well, it's the 15th and that means it is time for the next recipe for the Martha Stewart Cupcake Club! Yeah! The choice this month is from Tracey over at Tracey's Culinary Adventures. Being the sweet purist that I am, I was wondering what these would be like. Would they be more like zucchini bread or truly like a sweet cupcake. In the end, they really are like both.Here are all the ingredients, minus the eggs and flour. The recipe was pretty simple and I didn't even use my KitchenAide.
The yummy mixture! It smelled like fall in my house..and I'm not quite ready for all yet. Give me my one last week of summer! But it did smell good...
And even better when they came out of the oven! BTW, check out my very cute oven mitt given to me by a good friend. She got it at Anthropologie. Love that store! But I digress...
Here's the finished product, with just enough of the cream cheese frosting.
It was very moist and extremely flavorful. The crumb was just like that of good zucchini bread.
The taste? It was very good, but not like your typical cupcake. Just saying this so you don't expect something you may not be getting. With the cream cheese frosting, it did make it a little sweeter, but to me, it was like a very sweet bread. Again, yummy, but not your go-to cupcake if you are needing a fix. You know what I mean.
